Welcome to our community! I'm so glad you found us.
I can see that our wonderful members have given you very good information!
What I can add is that it's very common for most doctors to be very uneducated about
these infections, most have no idea how to read or interpret the tests. A positive ELISA is all that's needed, especially when combined with your symptoms.
So you need to find a doctor that will believe that the positive ELISA is enough, or treat yourself. We have quite a few members that are treating themselves, including myself. While not ideal, it's a lot better than trying to see how long you can live with an active infection going on in your body.
If you haven't yet, it would be helpful for you to start with reading through the thread at the top of the forum titled,"New to Lyme?...Start here!!", as it is packed full of important information, symptom lists, helpful links and pdf's, how to detox when one has these infections, information on probiotics and much more. And, here's another good place to find helpful detoxing routines:http://www.tiredoflyme.com/detox-methods.html
